Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated Fuentes’s account. Just last week, Fuentes called Hitler “really fucking cool.” Nazi, white nationalist, and Taliban fan Nick Fuentes is back on Twitter. Fuentes was originally banned from Twitter in July 2021 for his dangerous and violent rhetoric about people of color, women, Jewish people, immigrants, LGBTQ people, Covid-19, and much more. Even after being banned from Twitter (and several other social media platforms), Fuentes continued his venomous tirade against everyone and everything in the world that is not him. He has proudly said he’s “just like Hitler,” has called for the right to embrace becoming a “truly reactionary party,” and has said that “Catholic monarchy, and just war, and crusades, and inquisitions” are much better than democracy. Just last week, Fuentes called Hitler “a pedophile … also really fucking cool.” And now Elon Musk’s Twitter has brought him back.

siehe auch: Nick Fuentes, Nazi-Loving Insurrectionist And Ye Adviser, Is Back On Twitter Fuentes, who encouraged supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol in 2021, is the latest fascist allowed back on the platform since Elon Musk’s takeover. Twitter has reinstated the account of Nick Fuentes, the prominent white supremacist who most recently made headlines for joining the antisemitic presidential campaign of rapper Ye, after a year-and-half exile from the platform. The tech company reinstated Fuentes’ verified account Tuesday, making him the latest extremist figure permitted on the site since the beginning of billionaire Elon Musk’s chaotic tenure as CEO. Twitter banned Fuentes in July 2021 for “repeated violations” of the rules, pushing him and his followers, many of whom call themselves “Groypers,” to alternative social media platforms like Telegram. Fuentes created another account in October 2022 when Musk took control of the company, but it swiftly banned that, too. Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Fuentes’ reinstatement. Now that’s he’s officially back on Twitter, the 24-year-old — who rose to prominence in fascist circles after attending the deadly neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 — will have an even bigger megaphone to push his explicitly racist and antisemitic agenda. Fuentes held a literal megaphone outside the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, where he reportedly could be heard encouraging his supporters to storm the building. Congress later subpoenaed Fuentes — who had been a major player in the “Stop the Steal” movement to keep Donald Trump in power after the then-president’s 2020 election loss — over his involvement in the insurrection. In February 2022, Fuentes hosted a white supremacist conference in Florida where he praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and led his supporters in a chant supporting Russian President Vladimir Putin as the Kremlin’s bombs dropped on Ukraine. Another speaker called for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former chief medical adviser to the White House, to be hanged. Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) also spoke at the conference.
